The moments at the thresholds of our lives are profound.
People have been caring for their loved ones at home after death for thousands of years. Hundreds of people who have cared for their own report overwhelmingly that the experience, while sad, is ultimately healing and beautiful. Beginning the grieving process in the privacy of our homes allows for sharing and support on a deep level.
You have choices. Creating a family-directed home funeral is within your reach. We can reclaim this loving tradition. Over the last few decades home births have become widely accepted; home funerals are now being embraced by more and more families throughout our culture.
I am dedicated to educating people about their choices and to bringing back the tradition of home-based funeral care. — Peg Lorenz, Home Funeral Guide
